WATCH! I go to CLUB SPORTIVA for Exotic Car Driving Awesome…

Nothing beats driving 10 exotics in a day, especially in San Francisco. But that’s exactly what I got to do with CLUB SPORTIVA. An amazing place with fun toys. Watch and droooool….

Weekend INSANITY…

Off to San Francisco we went on Thursday. 7 hours up from LA. And all the while, I got the sense that cars were following me. Not on the freeway, mind you, but everywhere I showed up,… cool cars appeared.

We stopped for some joe in Pismo Beach. Great place called “The Honeymoon Cafe,” right on the strip. Extremely well themed place and great coffee. A must see. Then, back on the freeway where cool cars emerged again. Jaguars, Lotus, all kinds. Within a few hours, I was at CLUB SPORTIVA for a cool talk about Exotics. A blast meeting everyone and talking about design philosophies. My doggies, Bug and Sammy liked the Ferrari F430, paws down.

Then, off we went to Napa for some wine tasting… IN A BENTLEY! (Courtesy of Club Sportiva, of course!) We got to taste cool vino and drive a ridiculously cool car there. But before we hit the wineries, we snagged some lunch in downtown Napa… WHERE THERE JUST HAPPENED TO BE A CAR SHOW, DOH!! So, all the while chowing, we got to check out MORE cool cars. And the desserts at the restaurant, (Tuscany) were pretty dang yummy, too. (That’s my son’s girlfriend, Isla, about to take a bite of her CHOCOLATE CUP!

After lunch, we headed to Kathie’s favorite winery BV, 20 minutes north of Napa. Merlot is her drink of drinks, so everyone (but me!) did the tasting. I just drove the Bentley… poor me. SICK!!!

The next morning, before returning the BIG BEAST back to Club Sportiva, we hit Fort Point for some coffee again and… A 140 SMART CARS SHOWED UP!!! YIKES!!! And boy, did they get in trouble for not having a “I’M GOING TO GO SEE THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE IN MY SMARTCAR PERMIT.”

1. Go to San Fran, ’cause it’s beautiful. Or anywhere beautiful.

2. Go in a cool car, ’cause life is short.

3. Drink good coffee, taste some good wine,… unless you’re the designated Jeeves.

4. Enjoy yourself. Life is too short to waste time not doing what you love.

…And don’t give me any of that “I can’t afford to do this kind of stuff” nonsense. You CAN’T AFFORD NOT TO. There is ALWAYS a way. My whole trip? About $1000. It took me about 4 months to save that in a coffee can once…

Last weekend in SO CAL…

…That is, before I head to San Francisco for my seminar at CLUB SPORTIVA. Really looking forward to this for a lot of reasons, but primarily because I get to meet some great car enthusiasts. The LIVE Dissection will be on the FERRARI F430 and possibly one other, but we’re going to have a great time. And,… it’s free.

Major beach day today, and since I didn’t go, I’m lame. But I always like Fridays because they remind me of what I accomplished for the week. And this weekend is about cars. Tomorrow I get to design more cool stuff and Sunday I’ll head to Calabasas for the Village Coffee Roaster Show. Hope to see some of you there!

I’ve been reading a lot, as I try to do, and I’ve been fortunate to have grabbed a really good author. I highly recommend Robert Collier’s “THE SECRET OF THE AGES.” Excellent. Plunk down, absorb it and let me know what you think. The kind of book you’ll read for the rest of your life.

This coming week will bring a couple of new products from FIREBALLED, so again, let me know what you guys think.

Check out CARTATTS and MILLUSIONS. Fun stuff for your ride and tons more coming…

Be safe!

This past week, the boys of MyRide and I headed to San Francisco to shoot two new episodes of “WORLD OF CARS.” And boy, was this a crazy week…

FADE IN

The Club. Not just any club, but CLUB SPORTIVA. An extremely well run dream generating auto enthusiast club, catering to those wishing to drive the ULTIMATE EXOTIC! And thanks to head honcho, Torbin Fuller, that’s exactly what you get.

I’m saving the details for the upcoming episode, but let me just tell you that getting involved with these guys will light your fire!

…We started off the day driving the Bentley Continental GT, then on to the Ferrari F430 and finally to the Lamborghini Gallardo. SICK!!! It was like riding a 50 foot wave,…..FOR 6 HOURS STRAIGHT!!

Then, it was onto Lombard Street to run the “Crookedest Street on the Planet.” Or is it? (What’s the picture above?) Only time and the episode will tell. Coming in just a couple of weeks, folks!

But, if you’re ever in San Francisco, and you love cars, then CLUB SPORTIVA should be your first stop! Big thanks to all the boys there that helped us out! Especially, Torbin. An incredibly humble and passionate car guy, doing it all for the right reasons…
